This week ends the Colonial Pipeline saga with yet another paid ransom further emboldening ransomware gangs. Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, and EOS based DeFi applications were exploited this week for a total loss of almost $40M. On the bright side projects are finding and patching more vulnerabilities using internal code reviews and bug bounty programs potentially reversing a seemingly unstoppable barrage of DeFi hacks. Be sure to check out excellent reports by Ciphertrace and Chainalysis on the current state of cryptocurrency crime.
